Learning by doing

Since I’m using monologue to publish ClarkAlumni, I’m learning a little about C# and Mono.

For instance, I learned pretty quickly that Mono’s support for timezones in its date-parsing code is pretty much non-existant and this messes up RSS.NET since it’ll “disappear” any entries for which it can’t grok the date. Kluged my way around that by hacking off the timezone completely.

Then there were some fun crashes when it didn’t understand (among other things) that Leonard was using <guid>’s instead of <link>’s.
